Current Project

This is my current project, a block of the month from Beth Ferrier, she has called her pattern 'Lilllibets Garden' but I'm thinking of naming my quilt 'Rose Garden. Beth's quilt features tulips but I like roses better.
As you can see I'm still working on the centre applique, the quilt is to be turned on point and an extra block is to be added to each corner then some more applique.

I sew with friends once a week and we all made the quilt using different colours. This year we will again make Beth's next BOM.

Sock Knitting...another passion

After I don't know how many attempts I've finally managed to get the camera and new computer to be friends and talk to each other.

I didn't get to do very much patchwork/quilting over Christmas so I occupied myself by knitting some socks.
They're knitted in 4 ply and seem to take forever to make. I'm currently working with 8 ply and they sure do grow a lot quicker, lol.

Smokey Days

I had been hoping to post more regularly but have been a bit quiet over the holiday period. We had a great family Christmas, caught up with nieces & nephews that I haven't seen for months.

I have a new computer and it won't talk to my camera, I'm working on the problem and one day soon hope to post some more photos.

The smoke from the bushfires in Gippsland is very thick tonight, I'm hoping it will be a bit clearer in the morning.
